A masterclass in world-building and dense plot.
2 April 2017 | by ericks-86892See all my reviews

Without giving away any plot points, this episode has enough plot and plot twists for an entire season of a lesser TV show. That the show does this while developing it's existential themes down a darker route, and remains incredibly funny is representative of how long it took to get this episode made. Absolutely outstanding!
